does anone know a library or extension that could track the values of the mouse wheel or could track the mouseposition even beyond display resolution?
in fact i need input from a wheel in a range from about -10000 to 10000.
Library for extended input-device support? (Win)
you could use GEM for mouse position stuff or the , but for things like mouse wheel i have no idea (maybe there is mouse wheel support coming with gem i don't remember).
One other solution could be an interface with flash, i think the last version support mouse wheel stuff.( you also need the flashserver object)
(damn i could not find the link for the flashserver object if someone have it )
if you think this is the good way for your project, and you don't succeed to found it, i could post the .dll i have.
Also one other possibility is the Framestein stuff http://framestein.org/ there is some possibilities to interact with the mouse too (but i found this less useable than GEM (i don't mean this is useless but i don't find the english word for 'pratique'àà
There are objects for linux that do lots of mouse stuff. I don't know how well they work.

The objects I think will help you are
[hid] The human interface device , which works on Mac and Linux (Don't know about Win)
[linuxevent] Like it says on the can - you can read anything from /dev/input/event
[linuxmouse] Just the very chap! Best of all because it's event driven rather than polled and it returns events whether Pd has focus or not.
* just spotted you said Win platform.... try out [hid] then and see how you get on.
